Mayhem Festival second stage headliners Atreyu will premiere their new video for “Lonely” on monsterenergy.com March 24 at midnight Pacific time. The video will be available exclusively on the site for three days before its wide release.
Atreyu’s longtime video collaborator and director Sean Stiegemeier shot the clip in late January when the band was in Japan to play shows in Tokyo and Osaka. The video features exciting live footage from the shows as well as footage of Atreyu lost with in the crushing crowds of Tokyo and in reflection amidst the Meiji Shrine in Harajuku.
“The making of the ‘Lonely’ video was special for us,” says drummer and vocalist Brandon Saller. “We’ve never had the pleasure of shooting a video on location let alone in such a far away, incredible place. I think it really captures the true essence of our band. It’s us, on tour, doing what we love. The honest energy of the video together with Sean’s incredible aesthetic, makes it one of our best videos.”
“Lonely” is the latest single from Congregation of the Damned, which came out in October 2009 and debuted at #18 on the Billboard album chart.
Look for Atreyu on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour, which launches July 10 in San Bernardino, California and runs through August 14 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
